What are you talking about? Crosby is on the bench.

He was supposed to play against Boston, but delayed it to today instead... Why is that do you think...?

So wait ... did they rush him back, or did they delay him coming back? You seem confused.

the NBC coverage isn't THAT bad, however they didnt even show a reply of the penalty, let alone mention whos in the box for what.

No you just don't get it... He wasn't ready for the Boston game...

Technically, the coverage has been very good. It's just the announcers that have been subpar, which is shocking for Emrick.

If they were going to rush him back, why would they care if he was ready?

The worst thing about it is our TV network has a vote for next weekends NBC game and the Pens are winning with about 50% while the Flyers are on 33% so Ill have to listen to them ******* the whiner all game next week.

um, i think hes saying that he wasn't rushed, citing the boston game as an example of them making sure he was ready when he stepped on the ice.

I can almost guarantee it's not Emrick's desire. It reeks of a producer overlord.

McGuire to Recchi: "Do you want to be part of the solution or the problem." He also got Recchi to try to bash Crosby's wings.

Flyers still need to turn it up, they haven't been generating very many chances. Outside of Esche and maybe Zeus as usual, there hasn't been that one player that has really stood out.

ummm ... no. Read his original post. Joni seems to be hurt again, and his first comment was 'I love it when they rush people back' or something like that.

oh, in that case i don't know. I don't see how he was rushed back really. It really sucks that these guys can't give us any information at all on him, let alone acknowledge he's not in the game.

There's confusion cause the statement can be interpretted in two ways depending on someone's viewpoint.

A: He wasn't ready for the boston game, and therefore with today's game only a few days removed from that game he probably wasn't ready for today's game either. Therefore, he was rushed back into playing in today's game.

B: He wasn't ready for the boston game, but probably could have played if it was the playoffs, but they just wanted to give him one more game off to be extra cautious. He wouldn't be rushed and would be ready for today.

That goofy look on his face would finally stand for something then, wouldn't it?

He better be okay. Nothing else to say but that. I can't stand another re-injury, especially to our best defenceman.

Man oh man...

Let's put it this way then, jeez...

Pitkanen was due to play against Boston, but as we know he didn't play... And if he wasn't ready to play against Boston then he clearly isn't going to be ready to play just two days later...

By that logic, he should have retired.

That really isn't true. For all we know, he might have had the flu or he might have strained something a bit from skating around.
